"This is our last game before the season starts," Gunes told reporters. "We will do our very best."

Seoul kick-off their season on March 9 with a tough game at home to Ulsan Hyundai Horang-i.

"We have held pre-season training camps in Japan and Turkey," the former Turkish national team coach added.

"The 2008 season starts now. The players got a chance in 2007 to get some playing time under their belts."

Gunes took charge of the capital outfit in January 2007 and enjoyed a mixed season, taking Seoul into seventh.

He expects a higher placing this season.

"Our target is to win the league. The club has high expectations and it won’t be easy but we are ready."
